Getting my fruit on!

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I’m really not into still life painting.

I’m not sure what changed, but here are my last 3 paintings:

lemon-600 banana-600 kiwi-600

The idea of still life still doesn’t inspire me, but in practice, they are pretty enjoyable to paint, and very beneficial, as they don’t take too long, and painting from life is great practice for seeing colour accurately.

So now I’m thinking of other still life subjects I could try, let me know if you have any suggestions!

Learn to paint

In other news, I’m still planning on publishing some sort of painting lessons/tutorials on this site at some point. If you’re interested and keen to learn more, check out this page.

    Musical instruments would be nice, guitar or violin were my favourite when I was drawing long time ago.
